Skunks are usually a nuisance to homeowners by inhabiting the underside of a person's deck or patio. We set effective skunk traps by utilizing "positive sets" when dealing with a skunk under a deck or patio. By this we mean setting traps so that the skunk has no choice but to go inside the trap once he exits the deck/ patio. Occasionally positive sets are impossible to set because the siding on the deck is not enclosed. These are the decks that need/should have a skunk exclusion performed, which we will explain further into detail once you call us on our business phone. Or continue reading and we will get into that too. More detail on the positive sets - if there is a hole around the edge of the deck or patio that the skunk is utilizing to go in and out, we will take a cage trap, put plywood boards around it, and then stake these boards so they are held in a secure position. When the skunk comes out of the entrance, he cannot climb over the plywood due to the fact skunks are horrendous climbers. They even fall into window wells and cannot get out for pity sake! Anyways, due to the skunk not being able to climb over the plywood, it will have no choice but to go inside our live cage trap. This is very effective and generally quick means of skunk removal that we utilize quite frequently because of the effectiveness.
Skunk Removal is a common service we provide to homeowners and businesses across Central Ohio in the cities of Dublin, Powell, Hilliard, Marysville, Delaware, Columbus, Bexley, Worthington, Westerville, Grove City, and Upper Arlington Ohio. Skunks will dig entry holes underneath your deck or patio searching for a good place to build a nest so they can birth their skunk kits in the spring time. Skunk removal can be a risky process for those who are unexperienced. The skunk may spray if you are not careful while approaching the skunk trap. You must be able to recognize when the skunk is threatening to spray. When a skunk is "threatening" you, the skunk will begin stomping his front feet. Once you approach a little closer, an aggressive skunk will turn around and stick its striped skunk tail straight in the air. This is when bluffing comes into play. Some skunks are serious, and others are not. We might walk up to that trap, cover it, and be completely fine & remove the skunk from the property without an issue. This is the most common case. However, other skunks that are more defensive might blast us if we take another step forward after he turns around with his tail up. We have learned the hard way how to differentiate a skunk that is bluffing, and a skunk that is not bluffing. Its hard to explain. Its something you have to actually experience in order to understand. Sometimes taking a water hose and spraying an aggressive skunk is effective because it distracts the skunk from focusing primarily on us.
Buckeye Wildlife Solutions also offers the service of skunk exclusion. "skunk exclusion" meaning we can take wire & other material to seal off the areas where skunks could potentially utilize for a nest around your home. These areas are usually around the deck or patio. The skunk exclusion process comes with a warranty ensuring that your property will be skunk free for a long time. We do a "skunk exclusion" by taking hardware wire, digging 6-8 inches into the ground, and then staking the wire down so no animal can pull or dig it up out of the ground. We ensure that this is a quality process. We are confident in providing the homeowner who had skunk problems with a warranty. The statement on a skunk exclusion warranty shall be "free skunk removal if the skunk returns and uses an entrance where Pestco Wildlife had performed a skunk exclusion on that area." We are confident you will have no problems with skunks after we are finished with the process, that is why we guarantee free skunk removal if it fails!
